The 1st IAHR Online Forum is not over! More than 40 hours of knowledge and discussions on water security freely available online

In this time of limited travel, the first-ever IAHR Online Forum was a wonderful opportunity to bring together the entire IAHR community along with many global stakeholders and experts from around the world to share our thoughts and proposals for grappling with some of the deeper issues and challenges facing water resources management for sustainable development, as well as to discuss emerging trends and directions for water security.  

With contributions from more than 200 experts, the Forum attracted over 9,000 participants from all over the world and included 8 key plenaries and 19 technical sessions which will be sure to help shape our common hydro-environment future together. But the Forum is not over: all the sessions are and will continue to be freely accessible online. You can access more than 40 hours of knowledge and discussions on a full range of topics essential to water security!
